We will be having a "grazing" snack every day. I do not designate a specific time for snack. I find that most people get hungry at different times. For that reason, I will allow your child to eat snack whenever he/she is hungry (provided that we are not working on an activity that would make eating unsafe, like a science experiment). That means you are welcome to pack more than one snack for your child if you feel he/she needs it. I want your child to be physically capable of doing his/her best learning.
  • Please make sure your child knows the difference between his/her snack and his/her lunch. Sending snack in a separate bag is a useful system to accomplish this, but you know your child best.

  • It is important that you remember to pack a nutritious snack every day beginning on the first day of school. Third graders use up a lot of energy! Some great nutritious snacks are: fruits, vegetables, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, crackers, water, etc.

  • Snacks that are messy can be inconvenient to eat in the classroom. Please try to pack snacks that are easy to eat and clean up in the event of a spill.

Our classroom is a nut-free classroom this year, so please do not pack nuts for snack.
